Cartographic Cplour – Bouquet

In Cartographic Colour, Revell deconstructs some classic floral icons to reveal the beauty and the complexity of nature. His subject is flowers, but the real goal is a deeper understanding of the way we see colour, revealed through a forensic examination of the role that colour plays in our visual perception of the world around us.

Cartographic Colour – Rose

Cartographic Colour is divided in two. A series of ‘palettes’ reinterpret the colours of well-known flowers, abstracted to eliminate the distraction of form. The second part of the project is concerned with the range of colour of flowers collected from the Wisley RHS garden one day in June.

Cartographic Colour – Hydrangea

The project is an artistic investigation into the description and measurement of colour from a meticulously planned photographic source, combining art, science, graphics and photography. It seeks to uncover the rules and choices that we make subconsciously about colour that are the result of combinations of flora in the natural world.
